I was looking ahead at the JDBC assignments and its recommending running an open source db. Does anyone have any reason why one should use this db as opposed to some other. (i.e. does it really make any differnce in the assignments?) I have access to a couple of others on a machine I'm using and would rather not load something else on it.

Thanks.

You can use the db you already have installed. We picked mySQL because
  • It's free
  • It's easy to install

  • and a couple of other reasons. But there's no reason you can't use a different one.
